    wow so much stuff going into this project ^.^ i admire your organizational skills xhin it always feels so good to have a project outlined clearly! esp when there are so many moving parts like this

    NIFE has turned into a ridiculously big project for sure. I'll be excited to expose it to outside interest; it's extremely feature-rich and customizable which should be a big selling point.

    And yeah, I try to keep myself organized as much as possible. My codebase is actually extremely well-organized as well, which has made the process of building NIFE very easy.

    My current plan is to work on v6 stuff because it's easy and gets me back into working on NIFE. Then I'll try to swing around and fix the rest of v5. I have no idea when I'll finish the vL stuff -- might be v4L, v5L or even v6L.

    Nature is beautiful

    that does sound v exciting i hope you will be able to attract ppl to it easily when the time comes :) it would be great to have your work recognized by more ppl!

    thats great youve been keeping so organized and im glad itís paying off!!

    i think thats also a smart plan for transitioning back into working on nife and getting the project moving toward where you want it to be! :)
